  • Publication number: 20200392303
    Abstract: The present invention relates to processes for degrading plastic products and the uses thereof. The processes of the invention particularly comprise a step of amorphizing a plastic product prior to a step of depolymerization. The processes of the invention are particularly useful for degrading a plastic product comprising polyethylene terephthalate and/or polylactic acid. The invention also relates to a method of producing monomers and/or oligomers from a plastic product comprising at least one polyester, particularly polyethylene terephthalate and/or polylactic acid, comprising submitting the plastic product both to an amorphization step and to a depolymerization step.

  • Publication number: 20190266180
    Abstract: Content of different formats may be sourced from various data sources such as content servers and ingested into a data integration server by an ingestion broker embodied on a non-transitory computer readable medium. The ingestion broker may normalize the content of different formats into a uniform representation that can be indexed and delivered across multiple digital channels for a variety of applications. The normalized content may be analyzed and semantic metadata may be determined from the normalized content. The normalized content can be semantically enriched by associating the semantic metadata and the like with the content. The semantic metadata can be stored in a semantic index that can be used for searching via the data integration server. During search, the semantic metadata can be instantiated as facets for user navigation and refinement of search criteria and additional semantic relationships can be assigned to the words in the normalized content.

  • Publication number: 20190228026
    Abstract: Methods, systems and computer-readable media enable various techniques related to semantic navigation. One aspect is a technique for displaying semantically derived facets in the search engine interface. Each of the facets comprises faceted search results. Each of the faceted search results is displayed in association with user interface elements for including or excluding the faceted search result as additional search terms to subsequently refine the search query. Another aspect automatically infers new metadata from the content and from existing metadata and then automatically annotates the content with the new metadata to improve recall and navigation. Another aspect identifies semantic annotations by determining semantic connections between the semantic annotations and then dynamically generating a topic page based on the semantic connections.

  • Patent number: 5119476
    Abstract: A method of creating data entry forms provides for the display of dialogue-windows on a computer system screen operating in a multi-window graphic mode. The windows are displayed by organizing the windows into one or more pages, each of which can be materialized by one screen window. In each page, at least one active zone, page or part of a page is defined which can react to an external event such as an operator initiated input. The active zone is then associated with a set of "editor" functions, wherein at least one reaction function of the active zone is responsive to activation by an external event or input.
